Educating Our Parents: Understanding the East St. Louis District Curriculum
East St. Louis High School follows the Illinois Common Core Curriculum for English language arts and mathematics. In English language arts, students analyze literature, reading nonfiction texts and writing several pieces to demonstrate they can read and understand sufficiently complex texts independently. They are also required to write effectively when using and analyzing sources and build and communicate knowledge by integrating, comparing, and synthesizing ideas. Students are also expected to develop speaking, presentation, and listening skills for effective communication.
In math classes, students are expected to be able to solve problems involving the key knowledge and skills for their grade level, express mathematical reasoning and construct mathematical arguments, and apply learned concepts to solve model real-world problems. Science classes follow the Next Generation Science Standards which focus on learning scientific procedures, key concepts, and research techniques.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision vs. Early Action
When looking at college acceptance rates, it’s easy to see that early applicants have often significantly higher acceptance rates, but this can be more complex than it appears. There are several kinds of early applications, but the primary types are Early Decision (ED) and Early Action (EA). ED applications are early, often with a deadline of November 1st, binding applications. This means that students sign a contract stating that they will attend this college if accepted. This is helpful to students because since it’s an early application, students compete against fewer students, and the fact that they are willing to apply ED shows a lot of enthusiasm for the school, but there can be drawbacks. If the student receives a better financial aid package elsewhere, for example, s/he is still bound to attend the college to which s/he applied ED. EA applications, on the other hand, are also early, often with deadlines of November 15th, but they aren’t binding, so students are free to take better offers while still enjoying the benefit of competing against fewer applicants.
